Share your joy of reading - become an RSVP Tale Teller volunteer and spend an hour or two a week reading in Kindergarten classrooms.

Studies show that reading aloud is the best way to help children develop word mastery and grammatical understanding, which form the basis for learning how to read.

Attend RSVP Tale Teller training where you will meet other Tale Teller volunteers and receive tips from Polk County Schools' Media Services Coordinator to help you become a more effective reader.

You MUST be 55+ years of age to participate in the project.

As an RSVP Tale Teller Volunteer, RSVP Polk will cover the cost of your Polk County Schools background screen.
